Linen Dance                   Linen Dance MP3

We're harvesting the flax crop today
We'll hackle it and spin it so fine.
Cloth we will weave for tunic and dress
To merrily go dancing.
(stomp stomp clap, stomp stomp clap)

We're hackling the flax crop today
We're hackling it to spin it so fine.
Cloth we will weave for tunic and dress
To merrily go dancing.
(stomp stomp clap, stomp stomp clap)

We're spinning all the flax crop today.
We've hackled it to spin it so fine.
Cloth we will weave for tunic and dress
To merrily go dancing.
(stomp stomp clap, stomp stomp clap)

We're weaving all the flax crop today.
We've hackled it and spun it so fine.
Cloth we now weave for tunic and dress
To merrily go dancing.
(stomp stomp clap, stomp stomp clap)

Cloth we have made of linen today.
We've made it out of thread spun so fine,
It could be made by Frigga herself
To merrily go dancing.
(stomp stomp clap, stomp stomp clap)
 

Lyrics, Recording: Analemma McKee-Schwenke
